First, I adore the icon. If I've said so before, it bears repeating.

And so few filmmakers these days, especially in genre films, appreciate restraint. As this arose, I found myself watching Marathon Man once more. This is a case study in how to let the visuals, and the atmosphere, create sense of dread.

The last modern film I saw to do so was Lake Mungo. It's the only pseudo-documentary horror film which not only got the look and feel of a true documentary down, but used the situation and the sense of place to create an air of intense disquiet.
